DUer Longhorn has passed away.
A message passed to me by one of Longhorn's (Kendra) daughters in response to a PM I had sent her:

At 9:10PM on Sunday, February 1, 2009, our mom, wife, daughter, sister, niece, friend, teacher, mentor, Kendra Joann Kahn, took her last breath. She was surrounded by family and friends and left us quietly and peacefully. Her battle has finally come to an end. She will be loved and missed until the end of our days and she will never be forgotten.

My dad, sisters, brother and I will hold a remembrance day in her honor next Saturday, February 7 at my parents' house in Dripping Springs. We would love to see and meet anyone who's life she has touched. This will be a time to share stories and memories or even to get to know her for the first time. Please forward this to anyone I have missed who you feel might like to know. We would like everyone to feel free to stop by anytime after 1:00PM on Saturday and stay for as long as you like. Of course we will do our best to help make arrangements for our out of town friends and family.

I would like to express again the gratitude we feel toward all of you for sharing your love, support, and strength through this painful time. I would also like to repeat our request that, in lieu of flowers, you make a donation to Hospice Austin's Christopher House where my mom was cared for and kept comfortable for her final days. Throughout this experience we have met some of the kindest, most caring people with what I consider to be one of the most emotionally draining jobs that exists. We are grateful to them all for what they do and for who they are, as we are to all of you, our friends and family.

(Sent by her daughter Sara Anis)

I got to know her in the moderator forum. We even talked last month when she was in Chicago for cancer treatment.

She was an absolute hoot and I think that she was absolutely terrific.

35. I teased her and told her that Jersey girls don't
wear cowboy boots - and then asked her if my construction boots would suffice. I added that they were steel-toed, and she was thrilled, cuz the toes would kick some serious cancer ass. *sigh* :cry:

I aperpreciated all her hard efforts in Classic Film Forum.
She was most gracious. D.U. has not only lost a friend but a person who really really gave of themselve.

29. Oh, I am sooo sorry.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed working with her in the mod forum. She remained funny and smart and a joy to be with and never let on that she was so close to the end. I know she was hopeful about the future and I can not express to you how sad this makes me and how much she will be missed.

Thank you so much for telling us. My thoughts are with you and your family.

EMILY DICKINSON:

Bereavement in their death to feel
Whom We have never seen --
A Vital Kinsmanship import
Our Soul and theirs -- between --

For Stranger -- Strangers do not mourn --
There be Immortal friends
Whom Death see first -- 'tis news of this
That paralyze Ourselves�

Who, vital only to Our Thought --
Such Presence bear away
In dying -- 'tis as if Our Souls
Absconded -- suddenly --

41. Kendra's spirit greatly enhanced our DU community
I know she was terribly ill but without being able to see her physically it was so hard to assess how debiltated she was. She always seemed so lively in her posts here and across the boards.

Kendra never knew how much I enjoyed her posts and her spirit. She never knew I smiled when I saw her posting in C & B. She never knew I thought of meals I would have cooked for her to spark her appetite.

I feel very, very sad for this loss to our community and to my on line life. My heart goes out to her family and all that loved and cared for her beautiful soul. :cry:

Kendra was one of a half dozen DUers who made it across the internet divide and became a real person to me. She helped me out with a project in my garden which took over a year to complete. It didn't matter how many times I bothered her with questions, she was always there to give me an answer. I sent her a picture of the project when it was completed, and she recognized the tropical plants. When they bloom in spring, I will think of her.

90. There are few words that can console the mind...
but let it be said that Kendra brought a warmth that is indeed rare on this earth. Wisdom, compassion, empathy, love, somehow seem empty; until we see them everyday in an individual such as Kendra.

Here I sit, a tear in my right eye, a tear of sorrow but also of joy, for my life would have been much less if I had never known our beloved Kendra.

May the pain of this day pass quickly, may there be nothing but memories of long warm days of love.

We must all cross this bridge in the future...I for one, will be happy meet up on the other side with so many that have gone on before me.

98. For Kendra:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gy33zFIvl38

"Beauty" by Shaye

So you've come to this bridge
In an unfamiliar land
You know it's a bridge you are going to walk on
And the only thing you know is
Everything you know
Will do you no good from here on

And the day that you spin
From your little cocoon
Well, you can't be prepared
For the beauty you'll find there
And you will find beauty
In the toughest of places
And I will be thinking of you out there

So pick up your bags
Look around at your friends
And you know none of them
Would ever have enough strength
To cross the bridge and lose control
I never felt this bold
Never felt this good

And the day that you spin
From your little cocoon
Well, you can't be prepared
For the beauty you'll find there
And you will find beauty
In the toughest of places
And I will be thinking of you

Stay true to your nomad skies
Keep your eyes out for coyote
A thousand secrets are lost
In the archival dust
So lay your ears upon the tracks

One day you will come back
With wrinkled hands and grey hair
And there you will stand on the spot
And you'll marvel how the place is still the same
Though you are somebody else now
Fly on butterfly

And the day that you spin
From your little cocoon
Well, you can't be prepared
For the beauty you'll find there
And you will find beauty
In the toughest of places
And I will be thinking of you out there

103. My deepest condolences to you and all of Kendra's family.
Not sure this is relevant, but my daughter's name is Kendra, and many years ago I recall reading a novel based in an Australian town whose main character was named Kendra. When we named our daughter, we did so because Kendra meant "knowing woman". Your mother surely was that, as is my loving young woman of the same name. May you be comforted with the knowledge of how blessed you were to have the lovely, strong and knowing woman in your life named Kendra.

The DU family is saddened by her loss, but fortunate to have had her as one of us for so long.

Kendra was one of the dearest DUers to me. It seemed as if we had the same favorites list, as we would find one another in the same DU forums repeatedly.

RIP Longhorn, you won't be forgotten.

153. Oh no!
Edited on Mon Feb-02-09 11:21 PM by hippywife
I can't tell you how grieved I am to hear this. She was one of the kindest people around. We talked often and shared PM's about her cancer and life in general. She was always so upbeat and positive every single conversation. If she ever felt bad, she never let it show. I had such hopes that she would beat the disease that was plaguing her.

She will be greatly missed and thought of often with much love and warmth.

I wish her family and those close to her, and I know they had to be many, the peace that comes with the wonderful memories of who she was and how she lived her life and knowing that her pain and suffering are no more.

I also wish I could travel to pay my respects. But I would much rather have done that when she was living so I could personally deliver the hugs she had coming.

I hope she knows how much she was loved here.

She never said a word to me about her cancer. She was always SO upbeat.

Longhorn, Kendra...no words right now. Only tears.

Rest in peace, dear friend. :cry:

I know she touched the hearts, minds and souls of many people across the globe on this message board and I know her impact would have been the same for those who knew and loved her in real life. She contributed a great deal to this message board even during her final months on this earth. This is a very, very tragic loss for the DU community and I know we will be the worse for not having her on here

I can only offer her family, friends and all those who knew and loved her my deepest, sincerest and most heartfelt sympathies, condolences, thoughts and prayers :hug: :hug: :hug:

207. Oh, no!
:cry: We have lost a beautiful soul! I knew Kendra from the mod forum, and she was always compassionate and upbeat. I understood she was sick, but she didn't let on how very sick she must have been when I last posted with her. I loved her sig line image, of the cowboy boot with the cowgirl shooting off a pistol on it. Just that image alone showed me that Kendra was exactly what (and who) a cool woman from Texas should be. I'm sure she passed peacefully, even if she was awake and in physical pain, because I know she was surrounded with so much love and support from her family and friends.

Rest in peace, Dear Kendra. You'll be dearly missed on DU and every place you touched with your love. I picture you now as a shooting star in the big Texas sky, lighting up even downtown Austin as you move on to your next great adventure.

238. I wish strength, peace, and healing for her family and friends
she left behind.

I wish the same for her "virtual" friends who will feel a "strange" loss of someone they cared for and respected but whom they never "met" but which is just as real a sense of loss.

Rest in Peace, Longhorn.

282. I am so shocked and saddened by this news.
I knew Kendra from the Pets Forum. I knew she was a dog lover but did not know that she was so ill. She supported my rescue group by buying bandanas for the dogs including the custom made Texas Tech ones I did for her in the Fall.

As you can tell from the posts here, she will be sorely missed by so many DU'ers whose lives she touched in cyber space and in real life.


Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

302. This particularly rattled me

she had been so very supportive in the cancer forum, and I didn't know things were that advanced with her.

I will look up that hospice and make a donation.

And although her daughter was thanking us for our support, she's wrong. It's her mother that should be thanked for her support. She was incredibly supportive to others and didn't give a clue as to how her condition was.

We must let go so the spirit can rest in peace. The one that has gone before do not want us to suffer in their name.

My condolences.

321. Kendra, I miss you already.
You were suffering so, but you always had it in you to lift MY spirits during periods of chronic pain. I wish I had given even 1/10 of that back to you. You touched me, my friend.

325. Lovingly kicking back to the top. Right where Longhorn belongs.
And just in case anyone was away and didn't hear the sad news.

Love you Kendra. Be at peace my friend.
